Good shot against the direct sunlight. Could've increased the shutter speed to reduce the glare..

A brave man to shoot into the full Sun. This often results in blindness in one eye; total destruction of the camera sensor; and extreme lens flare.

You were lucky to get the third. it also results in an underexposed image, with an over concentration of colour. The long shadows are quite nice, as is the overall

Personally I like the flare, and would leave it, but I would lighten the foreground somewhat and de saturate to get the colours less exaggerated.

Loaded a mod.

This is a fine image. Very strong indeed and well composed. The exposure, I would say, is spot on. Less would be too much for the shadows and you have got away with the flare. The green flare spot does need cloning out though.

I had a Fuji bridge camera than used to crash if used into the sun because of the electronic viewfinder I believe. The normal SLR system should protect eyes and sensor from the millisecond exposure, but do be careful with direct sun - it can be dangerous. Using live view is another matter and, I would think, could do a sensor no good.

Thank you every one for the comment's and critique, I didn't know the sun could destroy the sensor so thanks for that, will watch what I am doing next time. At the time of processing the image I did ponder removing the green flare spot but in the end decided to leave it in, don't think it detracts in any way. Of the two Mods I think I prefer Cats version being lightened only slightly and retaining the saturated colours. (I like saturated colours) Smile Again thank you all very much.

Never happened to me yet, and I do it all the time Smile

Added a mod with my own preferences.
